[Bug 1231916] Re: AMD A6-5400k APU with Radeon HD 8600 - Failed to start X after Installation


Yung Shen, thank you for reporting this bug to Ubuntu. Precise 12.04.3 reached EOL on August 2014.
See this document for currently supported Ubuntu releases: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

Is this reproducible in the latest enablement stack of Precise?

Also, could you please provide the full computer model as noted on the
sticker of the computer itself (not from the Bug Description)?

  On this hardware system, user can only see graphic installer using
  UEFI mode, in the other hand legacy mode can only see black screen
